Iraqi Ambassador to America: Marines Killed My Cousin

Posted on May 31, 2006
Iraqi Ambassador to America, Samir al-Sumaidaie

The Iraqi Ambassador to America, Samir al-Sumaidaie, charges the U.S. marines killed his unarmed cousin intentionally.

Watch the exchange on CNN in which Al-Sumaidaie makes the startling accusation.

Crooks and Liars:

BLITZER: So what you’re suggesting, your cousin was killed in cold blood, is that what you’re saying, by United States Marines?

AL-SUMAIDAIE: I believe he was killed intentionally. I believe that he was killed unnecessarily. And unfortunately, the investigations that took place after that sort of took a different course and concluded that there was no unlawful killing.

I would like further investigation. I have, in fact, asked for the report of the last investigation, which was a criminal investigation, by the way.
